Retired Member Plus is a package of benefits for our members in retirement that are second to none across the whole trade union movement.
It is estimated that this package of affinity partner benefits is worth up to £1,000 per annum. As a member approaching retirement or who has had recently retired, to gain access to these new benefits you will need to change your membership status with the union. All members in retirement who wish to enjoy the new package of benefits must be signed up to RETIRED MEMBER PLUS which will cost the equivalent of 50p per week.
Only Retired Member Plus members will be able to play a full part in the Unite Retired Members’ section. You will not be able to play a full part in the constitutional structures of Unite unless you join Retired Member Plus.
